Subject: Lovelight
Fall 69-Winter 70 was a peak time for the song, and though some versions can drag, others, like this, are brilliant. The rest of the show is fine, but I agree that the Lovelight is one for the ages. If you dig this one, check out 12/28/69, 1/23/70, 2/1/70, and 2/11/70, the last of which may be the best ever performed.

@newpotato11: The set list you mention is from 8/5/70 also from S.D. http://archive.org/details/gd70-08-05.sbd.jupile.17271.sbeok.shnf

Subject: First set acoustic??
I have on old tape labeled First set for this show with the following setlist:

El Paso
Cocaine
Drink Up and Go Home
I Hear a Voice Callin'
Cold Jordan
Swing Low Sweet Chariot
Deep Elem Blues
Dark Hollow
Friend of the Devil
Mama Tried
To Lay Me Down
Dire Wolf

I see no mention of this set on archive or dead.net. Does anyone have a way to verify this date or tell me what the actual date is?

The sound quality is quite poor, but listenable to me. The band is having loads of fun, and the audience is into it. Well worth a listen just for the historical value.

This is a real groovy show. Completely different than '69 or '72. '70 and '71 are slowly becoming favorite years of mine. There is some great boogie music going on here. I love it.
Peace out.

Subject: what latvala said was that
i remember reading in one of dick's notebooks about this show, that this show had great sound quality for the time, but nothing special was goin on here. that being said, you need to add this to your collection because 70 is classic al the way, and the more we all download, the more we ensure this music will survive in the coming years. peace

I believe you can get this show off the shn list on gdlive.com

I found it elsewhere years ago for downloading but I've forgotten that address.

I recorded this in the late 70s from WLIR, Long Island. It was the first and perhaps still the best Grateful Dead I've ever heard. This is the best Lovelight version going. The band was clearly in it's prime here with Pigpen, who steals the show. If anyone knows how we can get access to this show, please post.

One of the best versions of this song ever. Good sound and solid show.
Reviewer: ChrisShumate999 - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - November 19, 2005
Subject: Great Show
Typical of the era the Dead played primarily folk material with great early versions of such classics as Cold Rain and Snow, and Black Peter.

The Direwolf featured here is perhaps my favorite that i have heard up to this point, great interplay throughout the entire show between Jerry and Phil specifically noticed in Dire Wolf, This is a fine recording as well making it easily go from 4 stars to 5 stars. Short but sweet.

Download if for nothing other then Dire Wolf, Black Peter, and Lovelight. :)

A very good snapshot of the Dead's improvisational prowess circa 1970. Certainly an all time best version esp. 10:30-15:32.
Reviewer: millbraedrummer - favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - August 15, 2005
Subject: good music, wrong recording?
The very best tape in my collection (and I have two versions from two sources) is my 1-10-70 show in San Diego. Around 1985, Dave Grushkin was nice enough to give me a better copy than I had previously. I mention this for provenance. The version I hear on this sound board recording is NOT the same as the one I have on tape. It's strange. Close, but not the same. The China Cat-Sunflower is the reason I treasure my tape. I've heard many many Ch-Cats and 1-10-70, in the Dead's sweet spot, is by far my favorite because of the interaction of instruments in the solo section. It is breathtaking on the tape, and sadly missing in this recording. Specifically, two runs by Jerry are just missing. Either this an inferior 1-10-70 or it is not 1-10-70 at all. It may be 1-8-70 or something else. It's good, but it's not the fabulous 1-10-70 I know by heart. Sorry ya'll. I know of what I speak. Almost anything in the sweet spot gets at least a three, but...

Subject: All-time best Lovelight
This is my personal all-time favorite Lovelight. It's just so over-the-top crazy and the buildup to the climactic ending is total pandemonium with Bobby and Pig just letting it rip! I first heard this on the Grateful Dead Hour about 15 years ago, I taped it and used to listen to it all the time when I still had a car stereo that played cassettes. Still have that tape. This is a pretty nice, clean recording, too, with very little hiss. Check out a pretty solid Mason's Children (in spite of the guitars being out of tune). It's also interesting to hear T.C. playing on stuff like Casey Jones and applying his signature part to China Cat. I think he left the band in New Orleans about 10 days after this was recorded. This is a nice little historical artifact from 35 years ago, a different time and place and a very young G.D. Where does the time go? There are sonic anomalies aplenty so give it a trial listen before you download it. At least stream the Lovelight.

This show features a fantastic (and hilarious) Lovelight. The band keeps trying to wander off in to psychedelic jamming, and poor PigPen keeps trying to bring them back to Lovelight: "Now wait a minute..."
